October 10, 2006 3 Section 4 Group 3 Introduction : For this experiment the properties of stress and strain on a steel column were observed while applying axial, and combined loads. This is important to the study of Civil engineering steel is becoming more widely used in an array of construction applications. Also it is important to understand how commonly used materials in engineering will react under real stress because the real world does not always react like the models in textbooks. This exercise demonstrates the use of strain gages by using a simple hydraulic press and instrumentation. It also shows different axial and combined stresses, which are used to calculate and verify Poisson’s ration for steel.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
